We the People: The Constitution in Our Lives
Sponsored by The West Virginia State Bar
Congratulations to our winners listed below! The contest, which was open to West Virginia public school students in grades 6 through 12, gave participants the chance to create a video about what role the Constitution plays in daily life. Judging was broken into high school and middle school levels. First place winners received $500 and second place finishers received $250. The creators of the first place videos also were invited to attend The West Virginia State Bar's Annual Meeting on May 10 at Stonewall Jackson Resort. Videos were judged based on originality, creativity, adherence to the theme and overall quality.
